Classical homeopathy is based on the idea that your Vital Force (your body’s healing energy) “knows” or holds the information about how to be healthy, but it gets thrown out of whack by different physical or emotional traumas. The well-chosen homeopathic remedy reminds the Vital Force of what it already knows. It’s like calling in the piano tuner when your piano is out of tune, instead of calling a carpenter. The remedy creates a resonance that your Vital Force responds to.

An enormous amount of information is stored on the tiny homeopathic pellet, analogous to a computer chip. The pellets taste sweet so they are easy to take or to give to children.

The homeopathic process begins with a questionnaire covering your condition as well as you as a person. Then an intake interview, lasting an hour and half to two hours, allows the homeopath to learn about you in greater depth and to find a homeopathic remedy customized for you.

Followups average once a month for three to twelve months depending on your condition. You will not need the remedy for the rest of your life — in fact once it has done its job, you will stop taking it.

We (Begabati Lennihan and Farah Gron) use an unusual form of classical homeopathy in which you fine-tune your dosage so that you get steady progress without having to “get worse before you get better”, as many people believe is part of homeopathy.

How Is Our Practice Different?

If you have already seen a homeopath, or heard about the process from someone who has, you might appreciate the ways in which Begabati's practice is different:

Most homeopaths start with a single dose of a high-potency (strong) remedy in order to induce an aggravation (a temporary worsening of symptoms which makes it clear to the homeopath that the remedy is correct and is working). We start with a low potency (mild) dose of the remedy and gradually increase it in order to avoid an aggravation. Instead, we establish benchmarks at the first appointment which will help you as well as her to notice whether the remedy is working.

Many homeopaths refuse to tell their clients the name of the remedy they are taking; we find that telling our clients about their remedy helps them to feel more involved in the process.

Most homeopaths ask their patients to avoid coffee, mint, and possibly other factors such as dental work, electric blankets, and a long list of foods and bodycare products with aromatic oils. We can be flexible with these avoidances because you can repeat your remedy frequently.

Hypersensitives (people who are extremely sensitive to environmental influences) are ideal candidates for homeopathy – except that they tend to suffer more than anyone else from the high potencies used by most homeopaths. We adjust the strength of the remedy to the sensitivity of our clients, using extremely gentle potencies for hypersensitives, so that even people who may have suffered from previous homeopathic treatment are often able to benefit from homeopathy with us.

Many homeopaths ask their clients to stop taking vitamins and herbs, and to stop other modalities they may be using like acupuncture or chiropractic. We encourage our clients to continue doing anything which they feel is helping, except not to start anything new at the same time as the remedy in order to assess the remedy clearly.

We both enjoy creating an empowering and collaborative relationship with our clients. We believe in explaining our process and the remedies you will be taking. We believe that you are in charge of yor own change and we are here to support your progress.
